While I was at camp last summer, I injured my elbow while I was trying to do a back flip on the trampoline. The arm was swollen and I wasn't able to move it.

I called a Christian Science practitioner I knew and asked her to help me. I also prayed by knowing that nothing bad could happen to me; error wasn't part of me, because I was an idea of God.

After a week I got an X-ray. The doctor called the next day at camp and said that everything was in place and it was healing. We decided not to have a cast, but my parents had me wear a sling to protect the arm, even though I didn't want to wear it. I was able to do most of the activities at camp. I was healed three weeks before the doctor thought I would be. My elbow is as good as new, and I can still beat my dad at basketball.
